Pre-employment and contractor screening
We invest as much effort into protecting personal information of our clients, as we put into securing our own private data. Our equipment is certified by the standards of the Russian regulatory agency (the Federal Service for Supervision in the Sphere of Telecom, Information Technologies and Mass Communications) and designed to protect information subject to bank secrecy. All Infocorps employees are obliged to sign a non-disclosure agreement.
Expertise & experience
We draw on expertise and over 20 years’ experience of Staf-Alliance Security Group in terms of risk assessment and decision-making assistance. Most Infocorps professionals graduated from the leading universities of Russia and the United States and have an average of 5 years work experience in the security industry.
Use of primary sources
We do not rely on any services of the information brokers that aggregate data from various sources. We believe that the utmost reliable information can be collated from primary sources only: education must be verified through educational institutions, professional experience must be confirmed by co-workers and line managers. Even then we always double-check our data via alternative channels.
It is against our principles to mislead clients or hide information from them, as we are always eager to keep our clients fully informed in a clear and fair manner.

Our company emerged in response to modern trends of security market, which is experiencing a growing need for more quality, complex and, most importantly, legal services. Intellectual security services here in Russia are no longer marketed as some bonus to physical security services and technical aid installment.
Assistance in decision-making requires not only proficiency and high level of expertise (in law, finance, international relations), but also a good awareness of the current business environment. I am delighted that our company can deliver high level of such service to our clients.
Yuri A. Pokalyuk, CEO
Many market players in Russia consider pre-employment and contractor screening as a secondary business area. Some of them focus on physical security services, recruiting and software distribution instead. We specialize in pre-employment and contractor checks and take pride in our quality service:
Not a security company
We prefer quality over inclusiveness, as we offer neither physical security services nor technical aid installments (e.g. access control, CCTV).
Not a recruiting agency
Any chance of our involvement with job applicants’ success or failure is minimized.
Not a database provider
Our clients receive a comprehensive report made by highly competent professionals, who have direct access to primary sources. We do not supply our clients with raw data from any open or private databases.
